Eastern Canadian City – Halifax

1 06 2008

Just home from Halifax, which was great.  Was there on the Liberated Learning project, which uses speech recognition technology to imporve the access to information.  It was my first time to Halifax, and it’s an energic little town with a ton of live music and energy (most likely fueled by the numerous universities in the area).

Also had a chance to see a lot of the local sites, including the Citadel, the Alexander Keith’s Brewery (those who like it, like it a lot), walk the waterfront, and have a few pints in a few bars.  Best day was probably the Friday, as I went with Phil from Dalhousie out to the Bay of Fundy, and then that night saw The Sadies play forever.  They rocked the place hard with nearly 3 hours of surf guitar bluegrass foot stomping madness!  Absolutely loved it – exciting technology evolution and a cool city to do it in. 

Cue the numerous tourist photos (group shot is the Liberated Learning project partners from Saint Mary’s University, IBM, Canadian Hard of Hearing Assosication, Learning Disability Association of Canada, and of course, Neil Squire Society).
